The most important thing is knowledge. Having a degree from best institution is just increase your chance to get the job. At the time of interview, they only wanted to check your problem solving skills. There are many solutions for one problem they will test how you are going to approach the question.

There are many jobs available in the market like Software Developer/ Engineer, System Engineer, Web Developer, Application Developer etc require computer science degree with 3.0 GPA.
I got my CS degree in Brazil before moving to the US. Honestly. I don't feel like there's a huge difference (except for a quick jumpstart when you have a degree from a good institution). There's a huge gap in the IT market and every company has a dev team today. A college degree and good programming skills will be more than enough to start. Good luck in Shanghai :) Frederico Hakamine

The undergraduate study gives you the opportunity to learn the fundamental knowledge of Computer Science and train your skills like analysis, problem solving, etc. I am glad to hear that your study is in China. You can take this opportunity to practice an additional language on the ground and develop the people network there too.

The question on your career prospect of studying CS is really subject to your interest and the opportunities available at that time. You can look for job opportunities in US or China after completing your undergraduate study. However, you can also consider other opportunities that you have interested on. Undergraduate study gives you the fundamental training on that subject area. But, it does not limit you to build your career on that subject only.

Hope this help!
